I just found this in my aggregated feeds. Great job JetBrains! I wish more companies would look into personal license scheme’s. Why? Well, I’m a independent contractor, thus I don’t have the income to justify spending uber dollars on getting an MSDN subscription or buy some of the very expensive tools I like. But I think if more companies looked at personal license schemes, then more freelance people would be able to afford their tools.
Another point I’d like to make, is how subscriptions like MSDN is composed. I would like to have the following Microsoft applications in some personal subscription scheme:
- Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite
- SQL Server 2005 Developer
- Windows Vista Ultimate
- Team Foundation Server
- Office 2007
This is because I mainly use these applications in my day to day work. Thus for me it is important to keep up to date with the latest developments in these products.
Anyways, back to Resharper and JetBrains. They have the Personal License at $149.00 USD. Which is quite affordable for a very helpful tool. And to be honest, I am lost if I don’t have Resharper installed in Visual Studio. It is an absolutely necessity to have alongside Visual Studio…
